Are unannounced case worker visits normal?

Our placement worker announced that she would do unannounced visits in November to ensure homes were in compliance.  We’ve only been licensed for a couple of months so I’m not sure if this is normal procedure.  I wonder if it has anything to do with this:

The state has stopped placing abused and neglected children with a major contractor after finding more problems at the company’s nearly 400 foster homes, a third of them in North Texas.

A recent state sweep of foster homes run by Texas Mentor, a division of National Mentor Healthcare, disclosed more instances of substandard care, the Department of Family and Protective Services said Friday.
